Why It Is Important to Keep Your Menu Current
When opening a restaurant, creating the right menu for your restaurant is one of the most important steps for your restaurant’s success. In making the selections for your menu, you are more than likely including certain dishes for various reasons. Your restaurant’s signature dishes are chosen because these dishes are what your restaurant will be known for, and usually go with your restaurant’s theme and style. Additionally, some items may be chosen due to the high profit margins the dishes can bring to your restaurant. Others may be dishes that are popular with consumers now and are considered food trends. While your signature dishes may always stay on your menu, it may not be logical for all dishes to do so; you should periodically consider making changes to your menu to keep your menu current.
Every three to four months take the time to review your restaurant’s menu to see what is selling and what is not selling. Are items that were popular a few months ago still being ordered by customers? Is a once high profit dish now costing too much to produce due to increased food costs? Just because a particular menu selection made sense for your restaurant at one time, does not mean that it does months later. Knowing that your menu may change in the future, you need to think ahead when selecting a menu cover for your restaurant. Choose a menu cover that you can easily change menu inserts to save your restaurant time and money by not having to do a complete menu reprint.
Menu Designs has many menu cover options that allow for easy to change menu inserts. Our Café Covers come in a various number of panels and sizes, are durable, lightweight, and easy to clean. If you only need to update one page of your menu, you would only need to reprint that one page instead of your entire menu. Another menu cover option is menu boards. Our menu boards come in various options including our menu boards with bands, Newport Series, Tablet Series and clipboard series, all in various materials and styles. Menu inserts are secured in different ways, depending on the board chosen, and can easily be removed and reprinted when a change is needed. These are two of the many flexible menu cover options that we create at Menu Designs.
Remember, when choosing the menu cover for your restaurant’s menu, think ahead. Choose a menu cover not only for the look but also consider the flexibility of the menu cover too. If you plan on making changes to your menu, choose a menu that can easily be changed without having to reprint your entire menu to save your restaurant time and money.
